“Where’s my powder-blue cashmere shortie????”
Poor little rich girl Jerrie Turner (Irish McCalla) will
soon have much more to worry about than her decimated wardrobe.
She and her companions Fred Maklin (Tod Griffin) and Sammy
Ching (Victor Sen-Yung, Charlie Chan’s #2 son and, later, cook Hop Sing on “Bonanza”)wash up on an uncharted desert island after riding out a hurricane.
But that’s just the start of their troubles. Shortly, they’ll encounter dancing “native” girls (perfectly coiffed and painted, and
Caucasian), a long-forgotten Nazi outpost, a mad doctor, surgical experiments
on said dancing girls (who are later kept in bamboo cages), an active volcano, a
possible perpetual energy machine, and the unwelcome romantic advances of the Nazi commander (aimed only at Jerrie). Did I mention that the USAF is also preparing to use the island for practicing its aerial bombing techniques?
That’s enough adventure for several B-movies, but “She
Demons” manages to cram it all into a mere 76-minute run time.
